Time zone: central
Mel & Tim “Backfield In Motion”
from Beg, Scream & Shout (Rhino 1997) R —Well, it is almost Super Bowl Sunday, right? Pretty much a national holiday. Thanks to Rich Reese from Pop The Beat Bubble Burst for suggesting this and reminding me I forgot to play this to kick off the Rams season. - 1969 single written by Mel & Tim.
Inez & Charlie Foxx “Mockingbird”
from Count The Days (Charly 1995) —Written by Inez and Charlie Foxx and originally released in 1968. Found on this single-disc retrospective. Really extensive liner notes. Too bad they are all about a different retrospective by Joe Simon. At least, they got the track listing right.
James & Bobby Purify “She Ain't Gonna Do Right”
from Shake a Tail Feather! The Best of James and Bobby Purify (Sundazed 2002) —Previously unissued recording from 1967 written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham.
Shirley Ann Lee “There's a Light”
from Local Customs: Downriver Revival (The Numero Group 2009) —Originally released in 1968 as a single for the Revival label. Written by Shirley Ann Lee and her husband, James Lee. Recorded at Double U Sound in Ecorse, MI which was owned and ran by Felton Williams (who played guitar on this track).
from Manassas (Atlantic 1972) —One of my favorite releases of the seventies. This 2-LP debut release featured Stephen Stills, Chris Hillman, Dallas Taylor, Paul Harris, Fuzzy Samuels, Al Perkins, and Joe Lala. They weren't around long but this album is more than enough of a legacy.
Mariachi El Bronx “Love Sick”
from Chimes of Freedom - The Songs of Bob Dylan (Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International) (Amnesty International 2012) —From this 2012 4-CD compilation of various artists performing Bob Dylan songs.
Dean & Britta “Ann Buchanan Theme”
from 13 Most Beautiful: Songs For Andy Warhol's Screen Tests (Double Feature Records 2010) —Music bed.
The Pastel Six “Bandido”
from Intoxica! Strange And Sleazy Instrumental Sounds From the SoCal Suburbs (Ace Records 2006) —Music bed. 1962 Southern California garage instrumental recorded for the Zen label.
